Product Description

In this delightful volume of linguistic revelry, you can horse around with the animal metaphors that make poetry of everyday speech - as well as with the wheezy cliches that are all too conspicuous in our daily prose. Romp with the rhythms and rhymes of "Inky Pinky," and see if you can "Name that Bunch" - a prickle of porcupines? a rash of dermatologists? But beware: you can lose points for laughing in "Fictionary."
